Visiting Wildlife Waystation on Bird LA Day

Yesterday, my sister-in-law, Jeanne, and I visited the Wildlife Waystation in Little Tujunga Canyon. My brother, Glenn, has been volunteering there for the past several months. He was recently assigned to assist in the raptor section, and was helping out yesterday. As part of Bird L.A. Day, visitors were allowed into the sanctuary for a brief visit; members are generally the only outsiders allowed in. Per the WW website, “The Wildlife Waystation is home to a variety of birds that include emus, exotic birds and raptors as well as local wild birds who were injured and unable to survive in the wild. We also have many peacocks and free flying birds, including waterfowl, who come and go as they choose.”

It was a great experience seeing the injured birds and how well they’re cared for. My favorite was Barnee the barn owl. Per the website, “When Barnee was hit by a car in 2009, a Good Samaritan brought him to the Waystation to see if we could help him. One wing was so severely injured that he could not fly, so this young adult was given a permanent home at our sanctuary.” ~SueBee

    Wow, Sue. Great shots. I really like the one of the hawk with his wings caught in the midst of flapping. 😍👍🏼

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
